    Hello everyone
    I am relocating from Johannesburg to Durban and have two 100L tanks with fully stocked and thriving fish. How do I go about getting my fish transported safely over 600kms. Will take around 7 or 8 hours. Has anyone done this before or is there any company that can assist? I really want to keep my fish

    So I've driven with fish from Durban to Joburg before and they do well in a bucket with a lid and an acdc air pump plugged into a power bank. The main issue will be the tanks as the ideal way would be to have another tank already cycled at your new place ready to add the fish to. I would rather do this than transport the tanks down.

    I would suggest having a bunch of your media in the bucket along with the fish. It should help with the transport as well as seeding the new tank.
